I'm the type of guy not too complain a whole lot, just kindly go with the flow on thing especially with fishing and I'm sure everyone on here does, but the availability of the left handed slow gear ratio casting reels blow from all reel companies no one makes a slow gear ratio for cranking baiting. I bought the new abu winch which I love abu reels and the first two gens but the gen 3 sucks I can't feel the crankbait work like I do with first two gens. So I need options guys! Im either going back to shimano and find some 201e5 or go back to right handed lol. I know the reel companies base it on sales, I could go to the conquest but 500 bucks on a cranking reel is a little steep for me lol. I just need opinions.

Thanks Ryan

If you liked the gen 1 and gen 2 winch, why did you switch? If I'm looking at a new reel, I buy 1 or 2 to try before I switch entirely. Just curious, coach
